Matinee performances will be at 1 PM and 4:30 PM with an evening show at 8:30 PM on Saturday (shoppes are closed for the 8:30 show). On Sunday, there will be a matinee performance at 1PM. A variety of vendors with fantasy and adventure themed art, artistry and collectibles will add to the festivities. Admission and parking are free both days.
Actors from The Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Troupe, along with over 20 local actors of all ages from the Delaware Valley, will perform in “Harken – Game of Phones”, a thrilling show that features action-packed adventure with stage combat scenes, stunning costumes, heart-pounding original music and dancing.
“Harken” is the name of the mythical, fantasy world that the 5 main characters are transported to where they must overcome many threats to their survival. Presented on Riddlesbrood’s new portable, main stage, along with 2 other stages set up on the Village Green in the heart of the Village of Smithville, from the start, the actors in “Harken” encourage audiences to participate in changing the course of the plot of the show through their use of their smartphones.

Voting is optional, If you don’t own a smartphone, or just want to watch and enjoy – that’s fine, too! The show is fun for the whole family, whether you decide to play or not.
